An effective solar pool heating system can be installed for almost any pool in any location. Your Sungrabber dealer is the best resource to determine the ideal installation for your individual home and pool configuration.
In addition to where you live, there are a number of factors that are considered when optimizing a solar pool heating system.
Factor 1: What is the ideal orientation for solar collectors?
|South|| The ideal orientation for your solar collectors is a south-facing pitched roof,|
near the pool, with enough space for mounting the required number of collectors.
|West|| An installation on a west-facing roof works well for summer heating,|
in some installations the collector area may need to be increased.
|East|| Eastern exposures tend to be less effective and, therefore, less economical.|
Increasing the collector area is the recommended approach for an eastern orientation.
|North|| Northern exposures are not usually recommended,|
except in certain areas of the country.
The modular nature of the solar collector makes it easy to tailor the system to a specific site. Be certain that the orientation you select is not shaded by trees or other structures. Remember, the effectiveness of a solar system is directly dependent on the amount of direct sunlight that the solar collectors receive.
Factor 2: What is the best inclination for the solar collectors?
|Year-Round||Equal to the latitude of the installation location. For example, the collectors for an installation in Tampa, Florida would be a 27-degree angle since Tampa is located at 27 degrees latitude.|
|Summer||Equal to the latitude minus 10 to 15 degrees.|
|Winter||Equal to the latitude plus 10 to 15 degrees.|
Factor 3: How many solar collectors will I need for an inground pool?
The "rule of thumb" for sizing a solar pool heating system is 60% to 80% of the pool's surface area in solar collectors. For example, a 480 square foot pool (32 feet by 15 feet) needs 288 to 384 square feet of solar collector area.
